Attempting Le Metier de Beauté's Couches de Couleur Technique

Saturday, June 23, 2012
Recently I was reading this really great post on Musing of Beauty that had linked a video that demonstrated a technique by Le Metier de Beauté coined as "Couches de Couler" (Layers of Color) and was very curious. The technique essentially requires that you layer four shades together, including a cool color right on top of a warm shade. 

I was a bit hesitant because I thought for sure that this meant some funky murky eye makeup, but I gave it a shot anyways.

I don't own any of LMdB's pricey shadows, so I used a bunch of LORAC shadows instead.

Did I think that this technique was gimmicky and that overall my eyelids were still sort of muddy looking? Yes. However, it was a very simple technique to master, and it didn't end up half bad. I mean, I have a hard time wearing cool colors, but this might be one way to do it for me. If I was in a hurry and uninspired, I would definitely do this again.

Brows: NARS Bali shadow
Eyes: LORAC Behind The Scenes Primer Potion, LORAC Garnet shadow, LORAC Multi Platinum Palette (the teal, navy and warm light bronze shades), Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara
Face: Mix of MUFE HD Foundation and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Rock & Republic Call Me blush, Guerlain Meteorites Pucci Edition
Lips: Stila Convertible Color in Peony

Have you tried out any makeup technique recently that you were quite skeptical about?
